Housed in an old engraver’s shop on the south edge of the Roosevelt Row arts district, the one-screen, 70-seat micro-theater specializes in foreign films, documentaries, and outer-fringe indies plus live entertainment. The hook: The lobby doubles as a coolly underlit craft beer and wine bar, done in stained-glass lamps and Moroccan poufs. Concessions include snacks like Middle Eastern pastries. So pour your Chimay and soak in some French New Wave. Once a month, the theater shows works by local filmmakers.
